“Dependable with an innovative chef”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

With a casual atmosphere, you might expect only pub food, but the chef here offers many innovative specialties, with very good soups, excellent seafood dishes and lots of sandwiches if you want a smaller meal. Various choices are added based upon seasonal seafood and vegetables available locally. Service is great and always friendly. Worth the visit.

“Paella in CT. You Bet!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Although the atmosphere is casual, the chef is consistent and the offerings exciting, non-traditional, and can satisfy all moods & tastes. Tempura fish tacos were delectable, and paella worth the trip from PA.

“We all raved about their lobster bisque”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We are always looking for interesting restaurants that are near the Goodspeed Opera House or the Norma Terris Theater. While there are many good places to eat in Chester, we found another in the next town to the south, Deep River. This restaurant was moderately priced with quite a large menu. All four of us had their lobster bisque and found it to be one of best we have had. We were told it was a unchanged thirty year old recipe. The main courses were fine, but not exceptional. It's worth eating here if only for their bisque.

“New England Tour 2013”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

this is a nice friendly pub, appeared to be popular with the locals. The menu was general American fayre. The clam chowder was very good. We left a credit card there and when we phoned the next day, the staff had kept it safe while we went back to collect it.
